2015 NAIAS Highlights: Ford GT Concept
In order to save weight, Ford engineers using carbon fiber and aluminum which could make car has better acceleration and handling. From the exterior, we can see GT comes up with retro design like its predecessor. But it looks sportier and more dynamic. The coupe has 20-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 that’s specifically designed for Ford GT. In the interior, you can find two-seat which is integrated directly to carbon fiber cell. The designer presents F1-inspired style steering wheel which looks unique.
Under the hood, there’s an EcoBoost V6 3.5L twin turbo. There’s no confirmation from Ford about its horse power. The automaker just said that it has more than 600 hp. Making it the most powerful EcoBoost ever built. It is mated with 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Ford GT will go on sale next year at the same time with 50th celebrate Ford’s victory at 24 Hours of LeMans competition. I’m so happy Ford finally back to muscle car segment and has a plan to release New GT next year. Seems like everyone are excited about it.
